171: Harley Quinn Redesign


I decided to go ahead and try to design my own Harley costume since I hate the relaunch version so much (so does everyone else, apparently). I went at this from the stand-point that for some reason it had to be done, because her classic costume needs no update. So this is what I would do if I absolutely had to. I wanted to keep elements of the classic costume, keep it practical and make it look like she can move in it. I went with the glasses to give her a smart, sexy doctor kind of look and combined it with a cool punk hairstyle that is sort of shaped like her old cowl. I kept the belt and pouches, cuz a girl needs a place to keep all her laughing gas and exploding cigars. It’s meant to be practical and sexy without being blatantly slutty and sexist. I hope you like it – I just wish the DC folks cared about this character as much as we do.


170: Supergirl


Finished! Enjoy 🙂


169: Supergirl WIP


Here’s a little something I’m working on for next week, I haven’t drawn a Supergirl in a while, and I wanted to.


168: Harley Quinn Relaunch


Worst. costume. re-design. ever. It’s so dumb, it completely misses the point of the character. It just looks like one of those slutty Halloween costumes that sorority girls wear. Why does she have so many knives? Why in God’s name is her giant cartoon hammer now a giant sledge-hammer? If she does a single gymnastic maneuver, her snoobs are going to fall right out of that corset. I hate it – HATE IT.
